The former ‘Jersey Shore’ star remains ‘hospital bed-bound,’ but multiple sources — including Ronnie’s pal Vinny Guadagnino — assure HollywoodLife.com that ‘he will be better.’
Ronnie Ortiz-Magro remains hospitalized for kidney stones — the Jersey Shore star checked himself into a Florida facility April 27 — but things seem to be looking up for the professional fist-bumper. “He feels like s**t, but he knows that it will pass,” a source close to Ronnie, 27, tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “It’s the worst pain he’s ever felt in his entire life, and he can’t wait till everything is over.”
“Currently, it feels like forever,” the source adds. “Even the toughest guys shed tears, and Ronnie has over all of this, but he will be better soon and is in good hands.”
Ronnie Tweets About His Kidney Stones
Since checking into the hospital April 27, Ronnie has kept his Twitter followers up to date with his condition:
— “Hospital,” he tweeted April 27.
— “Wouldn’t wish this feeling on anyone!” he tweeted April 28, along with the hash tag #KidneysFML.
— “Thank you all to my friends, family & fans showing me al the the ‘Get well soon’ love!” he tweeted April 30, along with the hash tags #MeansAlot and #StillHospitalBedbound.
Ronnie Is ‘In Bad Shape,’ Says Pal Vinny Guadagnino
Vinny Guadagnino, who fist-pumped alongside Ronnie for six seasons on Jersey Shore, recently stopped by the HollywoodLife.com office to chat about his new MTV show The Show with Vinny — so, of course, we had to ask him how his friend is doing in the hospital.
“He’s responding to me, so he’s good,” Vinny told us. “I know he’s in bad shape … [but] they’re taking care of him. He had some kidney infection, or something. But he responded; he’s tweeting, so he’s in good spirits.”
